Helping Kids and Teens Through Transitions: Free Digging Deep Webinar

Periods of transition during the back-to-school season can sometimes be a little daunting for teens (and for us adults, too!). Those can be anything from starting a new school year, moving up to a new school building when transitioning to high school, or moving to a new school district. Or, for recent high school graduates, starting a new year in college and beginning a whole new phase in life.

Here is a little reminder to check in with the child in your life and ask what they are feeling this back-to-school season. How are they feeling about the start of a new school year? Are they having feelings of excitement, anxiety, or maybe both? What can we adults do to help make this the best time it can be?

Join us for a free webinar focused on supporting kids through life transitions. Learn how to promote flexible thinking and a growth mindset so that they can feel confident in their ability to deal with whatever life throws at them.

Am I a Unicorn? Spotlight and Giveaway

It’s March, so Happy Child Life Month!

I love to celebrate by featuring some amazing new resources and including giveaways. I’m kicking it off with one of my favorite authors, Stephanie Sorkin. She has been featured before, so be sure to check out her previous guest post.

Stephanie has written a new children’s book, Am I a Unicorn? that is perfect for children ages 3 to 8.

Am I a Unicorn is a wonderful story written in rhyme about a unicorn that breaks its horn and grapples with the feelings of being unique and different. Can the unicorn still be a unicorn without its most definitive feature? The story touches on self-esteem and diversity and ultimately teaches the important lesson of accepting one’s individuality.  “When your OUTERcorn doesn’t match your INNERcorn…a story is born! Join us as a unicorn finds the answer to this very important issue.”

You can purchase your copy at Amazon, Target, Walmart, and Barnes and Noble.
